Wild Rice Baked with Almonds & Mushrooms
The legendary flavor of wild rice is paired with
the mild, nutty-flavored Hen-of-the-Woods mushrooms. A real novelty to look at, they're delicious when
sautéed and combined with rice. The "feathery" parts of
the mushroom crisp up wonderfully.
Preheat the oven to 350 F.
In a large saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter. Add the mushrooms, garlic, green pepper, almonds, and rice. Cook, stirring, until the mushrooms are soft.
Remove from heat and add the chicken stock, salt, and pepper.
Pour mixture into a large, shallow baking dish. Cover and bake for about 1 1/2 hours or until the rice is tender.
